A (usually female) character emerges from a body of water, revealing their previously concealed body now glistening and dripping wet, usually with closeups of their features. In-Universe, other characters may also be Eating the Eye Candy or Distracted by the Sexy. Oftentimes the scene is accompanied with Slow Motion and some Sexophone music — if they're referencing Fast Times at Ridgemont High, you could also toss in "Moving in Stereo". Sometimes the character may throw their hair back as they emerge from the water.

This trope includes a number of situations such as emerging from a pool, the sea, a waterfall, a lake, or a bath. Usually in the pool or at the beach the character will be wearing some kind of swimsuit. If they are nude, the scene usually shows only their bare back or is shot with Shoulders-Up Nudity or some kind of Scenery Censor.

Super-Trope to Mermaid Arc Emergence (in the cases when this is used for Fanservice) — a much more energetic way of having a character emerge from the water in a semi-sexualized manner.
